The Return is a migrant-led, devised one-women show exploring hidden consequences of war. The story, based on experience of living in Croatia during the breakup of former Yugoslavia is fragmented and collaged. It unveils an aspect of a family history, explores the surreal circumstances around a conflict building up and what goes into surviving it. Combining movement, storytelling, and poetry, this profoundly personal story investigates how living through war has affected where Natasha is now.
The beaches are lovely. Remembering is crass, embarrassing, and in poor taste. But to remember is to return. If we cannot return, where do we start from? Come to this show prepared to laugh, to cry and to feel awkward. Whatever it is, we will survive it - survival being an art. Or an embarrassment?
Audience participation. Age guidance - 12+
